A cotton T-shirt has an average water footprint of 2’700 litres (www.waterfootprint.org).
To reduce costs and for a positive value chain, the Fashion industry, cotton traders or trade finance and/or cotton users can prioritise cotton crops irrigated partially from treated wastewater and/or with organic fertilisers and energy inputs from wastewater.
The cotton farming area will then get improved access to sanitation, dignity and pollution risks will be reduced.
In this case the investors can even be via the orders of T-shirts or other cotton (e.g. for hotels) items via our WasteWater Reuse Exchange and benefit exceptional returns and advantages described hereafter. The transaction can be followed almost on real time. The W2AREX wastewater suppliers in this transaction gets also dividends or rewards for their circular economy supplies: in some case this can lead to financial inclusion.
